Moderate to heavy rain will cover much of the Southern Plains Thursday. The rain will cause some flash flooding along with offering more drought relief and soil moisture for row crops and pastures. Other primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions will be dry. Temperatures will be cool in the southern Plains through Midwest, and very warm elsewhere. The warmer conditions in the northwestern crop areas are welcome following a very cool and wet scenario during the past few weeks.

Highs: 60s/70s central and Southern Plains, Texas Panhandle, northern Texas, Midwest; 80s/90s elsewhere with some 100s southern Texas.
